the picturesque section of New Eng

At the Navy Yard the work has al
ready begun of restoring the general

ST. PETERSBURG, Sept 6. There

pers on the Anglo-Japanese treaty,

The Novoe Vremya expresses tho opin
ion that It is directed against German
doslgns in the Far East while the
Svlct declares that the treaty shuts
Russia frcm the Pacific and the open
sea anywhere in Asia. Tho Bourse Ga

Ex - Confederate Creates
Applause With Flag.
DENVER, Sept 6. The main event of
the Grand Army Encampment was the
grand parade which occurred today. To
the veteran the prlvilegd'of again keeping
in step with comrades of the bivouac of
'61 is one for which no hardship seems too
great . to' undergo, no order too sovere to
undertake. Many who marched the two
miles today were exhausted when the
end was reached, and many others, weak
ened by age, fell out of line long beforo
the Journey was completed. These tot
tering old veterans, regretting their inabil
ity to remain in the parade and giving ev
ery evidence of their feelings, would
be cared for by the persons nearest at
hand, led to a place where they could
rest and recover from their exhaustion,
it was a common slzht to see a gray
haired old soldier sitting on the curbing
gazing wistfully at his more sturdy com
rades as they passed him by.
Tho ovation given the marchers was un
stinted. The streets were packed with
people, and the windows and roofs of
buildings along the line of march
swarmed with humanity. The cheering
was continuous, and the grizzled old war
riors were kept busy bowing acknowl
edgments 'and raising their hats in cour
teous salute. The column formation for
the great parade was as follows:

Light showers had fallen during the
night, but the weather cleared this morn-.
Jng, and the annual Grand Army parade
has never taken place under more favor
able auspices.
Arrangement Most Perfect.
Three hours were consumed by the pro
cession in pansing the grandstand. Col
onel Harper Morchood. chairman of the
. parade committee, estimated that 1S.O00
members of the Grand Army participated
In the parade Kansas carried off the
honors for the largest representation,
having nearly 2500 men in Use.
The most perfect arrangements portble
for communication and emergency service
were provided. Telephone station? were
placed along the route of march and phy
sicians were In attendance every block or
so. A horseman was unseated by his
frlghtoned mount and In falling broke a
finger. A surgeon stationed near by had
nsen the accident and the man was
astride his animal and in line again
before the procesoSon had progressed two
blocks from where the accident occurred.
General Donaldson, of St Louis, was
stricken with heart failure, and was car
ried to a hospital 'in an ambulance. His
recovery is doubtful.
Ex-Rebel Waves Union Flag.
There were many interesting features
connected with the parade, but perhaps
the most impressive was the appearance
of an ox-Confederate soldier in the gray
uniform of his fighting days. ' A great
cheer rent the air an he stood alone in a
carriage waving the Stars and Stripes and
bowing to the multitude
Both the National Encampment of the

drivers of mall wagons quit their jobs to
night More than a score of them desert
ed their wagons at the Mail-street en
trance of the general Poatofllce after they
haff received word that the strike had
been decided upon. It Is an echo -of tht
trouble over wages some weeks ago. The
leaders pf the men say that the agree
ment: the bosses made with them has not
been lived up to. They also demand, an
Increase of wages.
Acting Superintendent of Malls Fox said
at' the PostoOce after the men" had left
the wagons, that although, there were ISO
mall routes to be4 delivered to railroad

would be, no difficulty Jn keeping, the serv

wagons are content with this agreement
but the drivers of the two-horse wagons
want JZXO a day. "We reported this fact
to Mr. Travis, but he took no action."
Employing Printers Solid Against
Demand of Union.
NIAGARA FALLS, N. Y., Sept 6. The
United Typo the La e of America continued
Its convention here today. The one ab
sorbing topic of discussion and conversa
tion was the demand of the printers for
the eight-hour day. The convention Is
solidly opposed to the demand. There
seems to be no sign of weakening tho
position of the executive committee taken
yesterday, namely, not to grant the eight
hour day under present conditions.
This afternoon a telegram from J. TV.
Sramwood, secretary of the eight-hour
committee of tho International Typo
graphical Union, announced that Presi
dent Lynch and Vice-President Hayes, of
the eight-hour committee, would be in
Niagara Falls tomorrow. It was resolved
that the courtesies of the convention be
extended to Messrs. Lynch and Hayes
when they arrive.

shot and a riot narrowly averted last
night during a meeting of tho Progres
sive Marble Polishers' Union. Con
flicting stories of the shooting are
told by members, but the police ar
rested a walking delegate, whom they
charged with felonious assault on
Francisco Valentin
The trouble, it is said, arose over the
attempt of the Italian clement In the
union, of which Valentir posed as a
leader, to oust the walking delegate.
Refuse to Accept Arbitration.
NEW YORK. Sept 6. The Amalgamat
ed Sheet Metal Wofkors. who are on a
strike In this city for an Increase of
wages, decided at a mass meeting last
night to disregard orders for their return
to work, pending arbitration. The order
was Issued by the executive committee of
the general arbitration board of the Build
ing Trades Employes' Association. The
unions declared the strike to be an inex
cusable violation of the arbitration agree
ment It is expected that the employers
will now declare a lockout and endeavor
to nil the strikers places.

day mod a civil suit in the District
Court against United States Senator
Thomas C Piatt and the United States
Express Company for $25,000 for al

assisting to keep out of Postmaster
General Payne's annual report of May.

Students Without Diplomas Will
Have to Stnnd Examination.
6. A new regulation that will affect
the graduates of a number of High
Schools and private preparatory
schools In the state of California and
other states from which Stanford Uni
versity receives Its students, was an
nounced tonight from the office of the
register of the university. Hereafter
no students will be admitted to the
university without examination, unless
they can show a diploma from some
preparatory school which gives a four
year course.
In California there are not many of
this kind, but In Oregon and Nevada
there are a large number from which
many students come to Stanford every
year. Many of Stanford's mcJst prom
inent men have in the past come from
Portland, Or., and as the new rule will
Interfere with every preparatory school
In Portland. It is feared that many
good men will now turn from Stanford
to other universities where entrance
is easy. The reason for putting this
new regulation into practice Is to
maintain the policy of the university
toward a smaller student-body.

ashore. When the storm abated some
what the vessel was found to be undam
